Democrats Propose Keeping Kids at School Until 6 P.M.

Parents should be able to hand the government even more responsibility for raising their children, Democrat U.S. Senator Kamala Harris of California believes. To help make that a reality, she introduced an unconstitutional bill that would keep school doors open until 6:OO p.m. or later, as well as during the summer months.
Dubbed the “Family Friendly Schools Act,” Harris’ bill would help further obliterate the family, replacing parents with government school officials for almost the entire life of a child. Under the plan, American taxpayers would be forced to provide even more tax money to government “education” so that parents could spend even less time with their children.
If approved, the legislation would start by bribing 500 government schools across America into creating “activities” for children from 8:00 a.m. or before until 6:00 p.m. or later. The schools, part of a pilot program, would be required to provide
“high-quality, culturally relevant, linguistically accessible, developmentally appropriate academic, athletic, or enrichment opportunities” during that time.
That means millions of children would be eating three government-provided meals per day at their government schools, further cementing the government’s role as provider in the child’s mind. Next up:
